Poking string tips at the bridge

so guys, I totally love my classical, one thing I hate currently is that the strings' tips that are put in a knot at the bridge actually poke my cloths a lot. How do you deal with this phenomenon?!

cheers V

How are you fastening your strings at the bridge? Here's an article on various ways to do this; normally, if you use the normal wound-back-on-itself knot, the string end should point down towards the top of the guitar.
Some folks tie a knot in the end of the string, and then cut off the little protruding end.

thanks when I got it it was like that already, I am gonna restring it sometimes soon and put better knots, it's got tradditional ties but it just is done in a weird way so that the tips of the wound string are pointing away from the body
